Edge Says It Is Harder For Younger Talent To Get Over In WWE

Fans returned to WWE shows back on July 16, and the Rated R Superstar appeared on that show, receiving one of the biggest pops of the night from the crowd.

However, Edge recently spoke to Kurt Angle on the Kurt Angle Show podcast, available early via AdFreeShows, where he spoke about how much he sympathises with the younger talent in WWE, because the hurdles to getting over are more difficult.

Edge said:

“I do appreciate the different set of circumstances that talent have to try to get themselves over in nowadays because I think it’s more difficult. I really, really do and having come back now and seeing it first hand, I’m like wow, this is harder to try and present your story and present your character because the format has changed due to necessity.”

Edge continued on, clarifying his point, saying:

“When I say more difficult, I mean for people coming into the industry now or coming into the company now. I have a body of work, so I don’t have to go through those same challenges because they’ve seen it, they know it and I can already come in and I’m already established. I’m talking if I were starting out now, oh man, and it was difficult when I started out back then too. I feel for a lot of young folks and I really do say just pick my brain because I can’t fully grasp what you’re having to encounter because I’m not at that stage in my career at the same time but I can at least give you some guidelines and some tent-poles to help you feel like you’re not drowning.”

Edge is set to collide with Seth Rollins at the upcoming SummerSlam show on August 21.
